We have a sidebar to allow folks to subscribe/register for updates. We have noticed an increased amount of “spam-like” or unconfirmed registrants (some with invalid, fake email addresses) on our site recently. Have others recognized the increase in these types of “false” sign-ups.

Is there a way to add a captcha or some other mechanism to prevent this from happening? Are there any settings that I need to change within the configuration?

Thanks for your reply and for your work on this plugin, Matthew. I’m not sure what version of the Subscribe2 html plugin I’m currently running (although I think the readme says Version 8.9.1). Is there a link to verify and download the most recent version of the plugin, just to make sure or will it automatically update when a new version is available? 

What is the time frame for release of the new version with some of these features you are describing?
